I’ve noticed that steak has been on sale a lot lately. mmmm…I guess I should say that I have enjoyed that steak has been on sale. Anyhow, I thought I’d share my favorite marinade for your culinary pleasure. As well as my favorite accessories.


traditional steak dinner


steak (You know what you need. I like tri-tip for affordable tenderness, but they do tend to be kind of weird sizes.)

~1/2 c. Worcestershire sauce

Montreal steak seasoning

Vegetable (I usually do frozen broccoli, but today I used asparagus, whatever you like.)

butter (or equivalent)

lemon juice

potatoes (1 per person, I like reds and yukon golds, they are creamier in texture so you don’t need to add much butter.)

toppings (I’ll elaborate below.)


1. Cover the bottom of a container big enough to hold the steak with Worcestershire sauce and sprinkle with Montreal steak seasoning. Lay steaks on top and then sprinkle with more seasoning and then pour more sauce over the top. Let marinade in the fridge for about an hour.

2. Wash potatoes and bake at 475 for 45 min.

3. Cook steaks on a medium low grill for 5-8 minutes on each side.

4. Cook broccoli (or whatever) in steamer basket.

5. Prepare baked potatoes. Here’s what I like: Open the potato and mash it up. Add about a teaspoon of butter and top with shredded cheese.  I like to top it with a ~70/30 mix of cottage cheese and sour cream and a little salt and pepper.
